Barn Revamp Progress in Progress

Here’s an update. We have one and a half stalls done, the hay moved to the oposite corner from where it was and a set of very suspicious camelids. The chickens do not suspect that they will soon be relegated to sleeping where we tell them to. Buwa-ha-ha-hah!

There Was a Story

Do you remember the story about the shoe maker’s work being done by beings that snuck into his house in the night? We have something like that going on in our barn. Only it’s not elves or gnomes, but Ray and a great friend.

If you look very closely, you can see work being done well after dark. This is so exciting!

Construction continues

Neither rain, nor flood, nor cold weather can stop barn contruction this year. We’re out of room, almost out of time, and definately out of excuses!

As you can see, we had a bright and sunny day. The holes have been in the barn long enough to fill with rainwater from the very long storm we had. We want to get the goats in by the end of the year, so Ray’s doing his best to get the stalls up and ready for our newest animals. The goats will be only after the chickens in our sustainability attempts.

Another One?

We’ve been busier than usual on the hillside here. We thought that we had seen the last of our castrations, but Brody proved us wrong.

Wood gathering continues, as does the barn renovation. There is no time to rake up the leaves, and apples will wait on the ground this year. It’s all for the best!!! We have to keep busy to be accomplished…We have to feel accopmlished to rest this winter. It’s better than a vicious cycle, it’s a rainbow with a pot of gold.
